Hello =^.^= *gasp* what is that face? Is it a cat? No, it's a kitten... my kitten! Yesterday when i went out with my boyfriend, we stopped by the pet shop to see the kittens. They were on special for $25 each :D Haha, so my bf told me to buy one and collect it another day... and it turns out I will be collecting him today YAY ^_^ When dad comes home from work we will go and get him! So be sure to look out for a vlog with my baby, hehe. Now I have something to vlog about and hopefully not be too boring :P
I've twitpic-ed some photos from yesterday (my breakfast and cake) but I haven't showed any pictures of things that I got. Last week my bf came back to Melbourne and he was there for a week. He was able to go to Daiso to get some items for me :)
Daiso has just recently opened in Melbourne, and it is a Japanese store which sells all items for only $2.80 each. Quite cheap if you ask me. I actually hadn't heard of Daiso until people started talking about it opening its first store in Australia. I doubt that there will be one in my city but that's okay, I've got some things which I am very pleased with.
He told me that Daiso is not close to the CBD and the store isn't that big. I was surprised because I had always pictured it as a huge warehouse store but it isn't like that at all. Hmm, is it really worth going way out of the CBD to go here? My bf said it wasn't worth it because he also had to pay for the taxi rides, but he still did go anyway :D
So this is what he got for me:
In a Daiso plastic bag
Oh I forgot that other parts of Australia don't have whole 'ban plastic bag' thing
Only my state has the plastic bag ban. I rarely see plastic bags used now! Only those material green bags.
3 eyeshadow palettes and 3 pairs of lashes
I could do a full review of the palette/s. The pigmentation is quite good for a considerably cheap eyeshadow palette. They are really smooth and not powdery :)
Oh a few of the shadows were a bit broken. I don't blame my bf for that. Things can happen when travelling from one place to another. Other than that, they are still usable so it's no big deal. At least they're not completely broken =]
Again, they're pigmented and quite vibrant. I love it!
They both had the same at the back, everything written in Japanese. I like how they've included how to apply the eyeshadows with the image
But I see that they were made in China :O I thought all Japanese things would be made in Japan? Haha
Very neutral browns
But sadly, not as pigmented as I had hoped. However that light blue is like WOAH
English and Japanese directions and ingredients. Made in China again.
Here's one pair of lashes that caught my eye the most:
Quite dramatic! Long and criss-cross :] I swear they're so soft ^-^
Comes with glue (I don't ever use the glue that comes with eyelashes. I prefer to use my Duo Eyelash Glue)
Everything written in Japanese. Product made in China
Yep so that's about it. I didn't get tons of things but I'm happy with what my bf got me. It probably wasn't that easy for him too because he's a guy and guys don't know much about makeup and beauty products x) So thanks heaps to him for going out of his way and getting them for me!
Thanks to VioletLeBeaux for the photos on her blog from her visit to Daiso! I gave the pictures to my bf so that he could choose out the items for me =]
I thought that all of the items would be made from Japan instead of China! I guess that's why they are sold for so cheap? Almost everything I own or see is made in China x)
I can't wait to try on the lashes and perhaps do some looks with my new palettes and colours which i have never worked with before. Please let me know if you would like me to do reviews or looks with these :)
